Runaway girl

December 4, 2008
By Tory Johnson, Fargo, ND

Under the bridge
close to the tracks
wanna dig in the fridge
with no food in my sac.
Lonely and homeless
cold and depressed
all day, all night
searching for something left.
Hear how she speaks to her mom:
"It's over and done with.We are done."
Hear the hearts break from bitter words:
"It's over and done with.We are done!"
Down by the river
close to the bank
she lay there alone.
Whose heart will she really break?

Take this piece with a grain of salt... it may not speak to you the way it speaks to me.
